|This article is about a/an set of characters in the Power Rangers franchise.|
A Ranger-like Ally is an unofficial designation for characters that have allied themselves with the Power Rangers and have powers and/or strengths similar to that of a Ranger, but not specifically determined as Power Rangers.
This category lists Ranger-like allies who fight along side with the Rangers. Though most of them are not rangers or have debatable ranger status, some are also seen uttering the team's roll call before battle. Some also have zord-like capabilities.
These characters usually stay in the form that they would fight in, because it is how they are physiologically or otherwise noted. Characters such as Ninjor, the Blue Senturion, and both Magna Defenders fall into this category. Ranger-like Allies often have Zords, or have the ability to transform into a larger Zord-like form.
